No matter what your school's mascot was creepy.

Posted on

2. Rivalries


There is always going to be one school in your state that your college can't stand. The nicknames and bashing come up no matter what and sometimes you cant help but get caught up in it.

4. Gratitude


Whenever a notable speaker or an amazing artist performs a concert at your school you cant help but give them props. While you love your school you know that most state schools are usually somewhat out of the way.

5. Weather


Most times state schools are in areas where the weather isn't the best. For some colleges that means constant rain and sometimes it means snow until April. In the end it all just made you stronger than ever.

6. Driving


Being in the same state as your school usually means that you're stuck driving to school. By now you can merge and weave through any highway and long car rides are your time to shine.

8. Defending


There comes a time when anyone who goes to a state school has their choices questioned. While some people think that state schools are a step down from private schools you know that a higher tuition doesn't mean higher quality.

9. Shock


Growing up everyone knew your states colleges. While your school may be well known eventually you are going to talk to someone from out of state who has no idea that your school ever existed.
